    This was a RAVEN for me. I thought I was crazy, I thought I was feeling weird. No one could explain to me what was happening!!

    Hello! Thank you so much for this short, sweet, but yet very powerful message! I didn’t understand when I heard GOD tell me that HE’S send the enemy away from me for a season back in September of 2023! While I knew it was GOD it still didn’t make sense to me so before I could ask HIM to confirm that this is HIM, HE had already answered with Matthew 4:11 but I still needed more confirmation because I’ve not heard any messages about this. I’m well aware of the scripture. So HE then gave me Ecclesiastes 3:1 and that settled it with peace like a river in my heart, spirit, and mind! Thank YOU JESUS! HE went in to explain it’s a season of rest Sabbath from the chaos, turmoil, and calamity that HE allowed in every area of my life since April of 2017. Through it all HE has indeed been faithful and a very very very present and active help the whole time even when it didn’t feel like it look like it or sound like it! I can look back and see HE was otherwise I would’ve made it through! But HE also said this season is time to not only rest but draw even closer to HIM, learn of CHRIST so I can really know and understand myself in CHRIST. To know my worth, value, and what I bring to the table in life. It’s to learn my talents, gifts, and purpose for CHRIST. So it’s not to just lay around although HE allowed it for a few months but still cultivating my relationship and intimacy by reading sometime out loud and sometimes silent. Sometime studying the word. All the time fasting and praying HIS word back to HIM! I love HIM soooooo much! Thank you again because I needed your article like the missing puzzle piece in this season of my life! May GOD richly and dynamically bless you!

    Sorry forgot to add… THE LORD had given me this Elijah in a cave story a few times during this season of wilderness and reminded me if it last year so thanks for confirming.

    Thank you. I’m in this season now. It is so foreign to me. But I’m trusting God.

    Thank you for writing this so well. You articulated exactly how God has been leading me. After facing so many disappointments I have felt called to a season of hiddenness to restore my soul. I’m starting a new year, hidden in the day to day and the assignments God has placed in front of me.

    The Lord has stripped me (in one way or another) of every ministry I was apart of. I am still fellowshipping with the body and serve, but like you said, there’s no other way to explain it except that I feel hidden… not in a bad way though!
    In the past this would have been sooo difficult for me, but that’s because I had the wrong motives in ministry. Now, I realize my top ministry has to be unto the Lord alone…. then people second… with the goal of just pointing them to Jesus, not ourselves.
    Thank you for this article.

    Thank you for sharing this; I related so much to what I read! I finally see that I’ve been in this season for the past year, where my own experiences with discouragement, exhaustion, and grief broke me. I didn’t understand it, I even thought that I was to blame, and I’ve allowed the enemy to heap on subtle condemnation.
    I realize now that God’s been drawing me away from everything and everyone else to a quietness with Him. I’d kept myself so busy, that I no longer heard His voice as clearly–and it’s been killing me spiritually, emotionally, and even physically…but especially spiritually.
    I was resisting where He was pulling me to bc I didn’t understand. The more I tried to do what I thought He wanted from me, the harder I tried to just push myself through, the more I struggled. I’ve actually been a little mad at God! haha.

    Please pray for me? I really need God’s help. I don’t know exactly what He’s working on in me, but I know that He is working, and I don’t want to get in His way!
